telecom, technology and the occasional floobergeist

I’ve got an abundance of bits and pieces of canadian telecom and internet experience, and I am thrilled to be in a place in time when all is changing, technology is developing, and the status quo is being disrupted. 

Floobergeist is a word that is beginning to defy definition.  The more I roll that smooth pebble around, the more it becomes to mean. Floobergeist started out as the magic dust that turns dreams into ideas.  And then it began to encompass the zing that happens when you have conversations about those ideas. And now, it’s the whole evolution from dream to conversation, with each step improving the later and the former along the way.

Everyone aspires to good conversations. They can lead you to adventures you’ve never imagined, and to people you can twig with.

Let’s have a good conversation…


It's Not a Goodbye, Sweet Carolyn

33550-1198608-thumbnail.jpgI toast  you - you priceless, amazing, beautiful, hilarious, feisty and ferociously loyal woman. With a great, lovely glass of red wine. I know you are approving of the vin rouge.

You, craver of life and adventures.

You of the contagious, infectious laugh and gentle touch.

You, champion of what is true and right and good.

You, fighter of evil and no-goodniks.

You, not afraid to stand up for what you believe in, and for who you believe in; consequences be damned.  

You, scoffer of politics, and flaunter of goodness. You, possessor of confidence and conviction.

You, fearless speaker, fearless mentor and fearless friend. You bring out the best in everyone, and you don’t even mean to. With your laugh, your touch and your spirit, you have the magic gift that makes everyone feel smarter, braver, prettier, stronger, faster and happier - just knowing you makes people simply better persons.

Today you move from present tense to past tense. And that is a terribly shitty, yes, utterly shitty tense to have to move to. It matters not. You will always be in the present to all the people who love you .
